Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number

SQL-89 functionality is officially deprecated in OpenEdge 10. 

The Open Interface Broker and Open Interface Driver interface are no longer shipped with the product, starting from OpenEdge 10.0A. Whilst some SQL-89 language elements remain in the product, customers are not advised to make use of them as no support has been added for new OpenEdge 10.x / 11.x features such as new data types, new ABL capabilities, etc. 

The recommended approach for customers wishing to use SQL connectivity is to use the SQL-92 interface, via JDBC / ODBC drivers.
